Traditional hair accessories like matha patti and tikka are being given a minimalist fusion look while elaborate jhoomars and hair pins are making their way into shaadis.

Getting your hair accessories right is important especially in indian weddings as even a simple tikka can up your style quotient but a little overdoing and you come across as a wanna be trying to upstage the bride. These days weddings come with no rules and not just the bride but even guests are allowed to flaunt Mang tikkas, jhoomars and matha pattis .

Here we put together a list of trending hair accessories to flaunt this season.

Matha Pattis
A simple Matha patti can glam you up and transform your look in seconds . Since you arent the bride go for light contemporary styles  and skip the necklace for a fuss free elegant wedding look.

If you really want to make a statement and opt for a heavy traditional matha patti then skip on all other accessories including the earrings and let your head jewelry steal the spotlight. This accessory is best worn for the reception or marriage and not other pre wedding ceremonies. see how sonam kapoor sports a heavy matha patti and balances out the look with stud earrings
even deepika and samantha have sported the simple matha patti look in  the past . These looks can be replicated by brides friends or siblings for mehendi .

Mang tikka:
This is my favorite wedding accessory as it is simple to flaunt and can give a very effortlessly stylish vibe to your wedding look. With tikkas you are allowed to go all out and wear a bold traditional piece or go the light route with a simple one.

Kundan mang tikkas with pearls are a raging trend and for minimalist chic look you can go for crystal or zircon studded  tikkas. This jewel can be worn by guests to any wedding function like mehendi, sangeet, reception, marriage or even cocktail.

You can experiment and wear a different style tikka for different functions.  Choose from a wide variety of options which range  from rajasthani borlas , kundan tikkas , tikkas with half head chains, crystal tikkas, chand bali style over sized tikka and tikka with pearl chain.

Mang tikkas generally rest on the middle parting of the hair but these days i have spotted many women sport this jewel even with side parted hair which gives this traditional jewel a modern twist.

Iam looking to try this side parted hair with tikka trend soon.

Head chains:
Basically the westernized contemporary version of matha patti these head chains are super hot in trend. Single, double or multiple strands of  simple chains rest on your head for a elegant and clean look.
These are best worn with indian fusion wear like a indianized gown, saree gowns or plazzos

Go for head chains in a sangeet or cocktail function of your sister or friend

Jhoomar :
Also called the passa this used to be a muslim brides accessory but not anymore. These days jhoomar is hot on trend and can be seen worn by both classes and the masses.

 Since adding a jhoomar crowds things up and makes things look over the top jhoomar ia worn by brides and not wedding guests but rules are changing rapidly and even guests can flaunt this trendy accessory by getting the styling bit right.
Skipping the tikka when wearing an extravagant jhoomar is the best way to bring in a balance but wearing both tika and jhoomar is also acceptable these days. With both jhoomar and tikka keep your make up soft and minimal and other accessories simple.
The best occasion to flaunt a jhoomar is during a sangeet or mehendi of a close relative or friend also we at blingsparkle think that a jhoomar works best with side parted hair. what do you think?

Hair combs are elegant and classy and work best at occasions like cocktail or sangeet. The style options with hair combs are plenty but make sure you have thick hair to hold these combs securely.
Hair combs can be used to beautify your hair buns, pony tails or even with open hair (secured with bobby pins)

Juda pins : 
Juda pins are used to beautify traditional hair buns. There are a variety of designs available when it comes to juda pins and you can choose from traditional or contemporary designs .

Juda pins tend to look mature and is best worn by mother of the bride or groom or elder siblings.

sister of the bride or groom can opt for simple new age juda pins which are pinned on the sides of the hair instead of the back .  Juda pins with chains similar to a matha patti are also available these days.

You can also opt for juda pin earrings where extensions from traditional earrings are attached from both sides to a fancy pin in the middle.

Fancy Hair pins :
Simplest way to glam up your hair is with hair pins and these days variety of hair pins you have is simply amazing.  There are plain bobby pins, tic tac ones, embellished pins, floral pins, bows and so much more to choose from .

Hair pins can be used to style up simple hair dos

Jewelled hair bands :
Designer Sabyasachi sparked off this trend on runway and ever since there is no turning back. embellished velvet head bands are very popular these days and they are the simplest way to style your hair. If you are having a bad hair day just grab a hair band and style it over side parted hair and set with hair spray to prevent hair from flying here and there.

The best thing about hair bands is you can use them if you have long or even short hair but make sure your hair dont have volume as this works best with sleek hair.
